Whiplash

Yale professor Dr. Edward Kender’s father is undergoing chemotherapy when the supply of a critical accompanying drug suddenly runs out. Unwilling to accept the drug company’s disingenuous excuse of production line problems, Dr. Kender hires private investigator Erin Pulaski to prove that something more sinister is going on at Schiffer Hartwin. Meanwhile, in Maryland, married FBI agents Lacey Sherlock and Dillon Savich are investigating a rather unusual case – Senator David Hoffman is experiencing a ghostly apparition with possible malicious intent. The case is baffling, and Sherlock and Savich are not sure what to believe, even after witnessing the disturbing specter for themselves. They’re no closer to cracking the case when a call comes in from Connecticut – A top foreign Schiffer Hartwin employee has been found murdered behind the drug company’s U.S. headquarters. Unbeknownst to the FBI, Erin Pulaski had uncovered a bombshell in her investigation – The Culovort shortage is set to bring in a windfall profit in excess of two billion dollars. Upon learning of the murder, Erin is certain it has something to do with her findings, but she risks exposing herself by coming forward. As the feds move in, the case becomes even more complicated for Erin, since the murder of a foreign national on federal land can mean only that the pharmaceutical house has a secret of epic proportions – one it would do anything to keep hidden.

When True Night Falls

Journey into darkness – Determined to seek out and destroy the source of the fae-borne evil that is rapidly strengthening its control over the world called Erna, Damien Vryce, the warrior priest, has renewed his dangerous alliance with Gerald Tarrant, the immortal sorcerer known as the Hunter, and together with Hesseth, a woman of Erna’s native species, the rakh, they will dare the treacherous ocean crossing to Erna’s eastern continent. But the crossing may well prove the least of their worries. For though the eastern continent appears to be a haven of stability and prosperity, this image of paradise masks an underlying corruption that threatens the very essence of the human spirit. And the three are soon forced to flee south into realms long since abandoned to the dark fae and its creatures.
Lost in a land where those who offer hope of salvation may prove to be the true masters of treachery, and steadily drawn towards a rendezvous which may rob them of that which is even more precious than life, will Damien, Tarrant, and Hesseth find their own fragile alliance shattered by a power out to possess or destroy all of humankind?

When the Bough Breaks

*”When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall,*
*”And down will come baby, cradle and all.”*
The Galactic Empire is dying.  In their high towers, the Grand Senators plot and struggle to grasp a larger share of power while on the streets, the poor struggle to survive just one more day.  Chaos and anarchy are running through the megacities of Earth, while giant corporations tighten the screws and colony worlds plan to declare independence and escape the Empire’s increasing demands for resources.  Centuries of mismanagement are finally catching up with the human race.  The end cannot be long delayed. 
Specialist Belinda Lawson, a Marine Pathfinder who survived the fighting on Han, is assigned to serve as a bodyguard to the Childe Roland, the Heir to the Imperial Throne, and attempt to prepare him to be Emperor.  But Roland is a puppet and a spoilt brat – and, perhaps, the only hope of saving the Empire, if he can be redeemed in time.
And yet, as shadowy figures prepare to make their final bid for apotheosis – or nemesis – it may be all she can do to keep her young charge alive.

Wedding Hells

After her victory over Master Grey, Emily wants nothing more than to relax and give herself time to recover from the duel. Her magic, pushed to the limits, is no longer reliable, forcing her to learn to control it from scratch. Every time she delays using her magic, she risks headaches … or worse. But she must return to Whitehall to complete her fourth-year exams and bid farewell to those of her friends who are not returning for fifth year. And then, she must return to Zangaria to play her role in Princess Alassa’s wedding to Jade. It seems, if nothing else, a brief diversion before she goes off on a tour of the Allied Lands.
But all is not well in Zangaria and the kingdom is fast approaching a major crisis. Junior aristocrats are demanding their rights and titles from the king, while King Randor himself is dangerously unstable and hiding a secret that could spark off a civil war … and the peasants are threatening to revolt. Emily herself is isolated, unsure how to balance her obligations to her closest friends with her belief in freedom, justice and democracy.
And, as Emily finds herself used as a political pawn by the different sides in the growing dispute and no longer sure who she can trust, she may find herself confronting a choice between doing the right thing, regardless of the cost…
…And losing everything she’s built over the past four years.

We Lead

*The conclusion to the third Ark Royal trilogy!*
The Second Interstellar War – pitting humans and their Tadpole allies against an enigmatic alien empire – appears to have stalemated.  Neither side can push through to the other’s core systems without risking substantial losses, neither side can gain a decisive advantage.  But when a brilliant human scientist invents a way to jump across the stars without a gravity tramline, an opportunity arises to strike the enemy in their undefended rear.  It is an opportunity that cannot be allowed to pass.
Now, HMS *Vanguard* and her crew – and the largest fleet ever assembled by the nations of Earth – heads out on a do-or-die mission to challenge their enemies to one final battle …
… And if they lose, they will never see home again.

Water Witch

On the desert world of Mahan, he who controls water rules an empire. Mahali’s rulers for generations were Water Witches, who could feel the ebb and flow of precious water in their very bones. But the royal family was slaughtered in a bloody coup, and control of Mahali’s water passed to the impersonal hands of an immense computer network. It was Deza’s father who hit upon the scheme, dressing Deza in ceremonial garb and passing her off as the last surviving member of the royal house. Deza demonstrated water control with tricks and illusions, and in turn she and her father would be lavishly fed and bribed by offworld traders who dreamed of wealth beyond measure. When their tricks ceased to please, they would cut their losses and move on to the next con. They were very, very good. But it’s the nature of a con man not to know when he’s about to get in over his head…

Warspite

Peace is not freedom. Peace is merely the absence of war.

As Earth struggles to recover from the bombardment, Captain John Naiser is placed in command of HMS *Warspite* \–an experimental heavy cruiser–and ordered to escort a squadron of colony ships to a star system of immense strategic importance. But as the crew struggle to survive hundreds of light years from Earth, they find themselves dealing with the legacy of the war…and a threat that may sow the seeds of renewed conflict or a deadly civil war that will rip the human sphere apart.
Like my self-published Kindle books, *Warspite* is DRM-free. You may reformat it as you choose. There is a large sample of the text–and my other books–on my site: chrishanger.net. Try before you buy.
